Chester June 8th 1816 -
My dear Girl - I am once more seated at my Desk. and pleasantly seated, because I am talking to the only person that is never absent from my mind. The fortnight past has been irksome. Whilst I went to May Court. and for some time previous I expected a letter from Louisa. and I should have written during my absence. But was in hopes on my return to have found your Letter. But I am disappointed. I start next Thursday for New. =fane. and shall be gone one week. I hope to receive your letter, on my return. if I do not before. I have nothing new to write - My health is good and I am processing the object mentioned in last- My father is often inquiring when I am going to Canton, And when I am to be married. I have not yet told him either and probably shall not this two months - And here I must beg of you to excuse this short epistle, for a man, (who I did not expect this hour) is coming in. And with whom I shall be engaged the rest of the day- I must therefore after tendering my best wishes to yourself and friend, subscribe myself. Your [underline] Cephas [/underline]
